"El gran Mexico" refers to the vast expanse of land that includes the current geopolitical boundaries of Mexico as well as the territories that Mexico lost to the USA with the Texas Revolution (1836) and the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo (1848).  While recent media commentary centers around challenges of immigration policy at the US/Mexico and Mexico/Guatemala borders, there is a long and rich history of literary, artistic, and cultural mutuality and exchange.  This course will offer a bifocal view of Mexican and Mexican-American texts that address topics ranging from cultural understandings of the historical break point in the 19th century to explorations of new cultural forms in the 21st century, alongside probing assumptions derived from northern theory using Mexican and Mexican American tools.

When Offered Fall.
